Biomass Boilers Go To Tiverton has the ring of an Enid Blyton Famous Five book, doesn’t it? Spiffing good air for the birds, lashings of savings for Mr Frankpitt and a jolly big cheque from the government every quarter! Sadly, no ginger beer, but you can’t have it all, can you?
This ETA Hack 200 Boiler has been running for a couple of months now. The transition from the old oil-fired Priva heaters to the new Big Dutchman warm air blowers was smooth and seamless. As with all our other installs the first thing people notice is the difference in the atmosphere inside the poultry houses — the air is clean and dry, it feels different on your skin, and you can smell the fresh bedding instead of fumes from the Privas. It’s not surprising that the birds consistently do better after we install biomass heating. The weights go up and incidences of various common diseases tend to be lower. Litter quality is better, dryer, sometimes dramatically so.
